Bug: There are certain parts of the game where you can play with the camera. In one of them, you can see through the Merchant's insides and you can see he's truly infected with Las Plagas! Watching him like this is really hilarious.

Continuity mistake: After Leon beats Bitores Mendez and takes his fake eye, you will notice if you look closely at his corpse that his fake eye is still in his head.

Continuity mistake: During the ingame cutscenes, Leon will always have his starting pistol equipped regardless of whether you sell it or have a different weapon equipped.

Continuity mistake: After beating the lake monster Del Lago and going through the cutscene and chapter end, you can take the boat out on the lake. When you come up to a dock, you can bring the boat up to either side. The cutscene always shows Leon pulling the boat up to the same side of the dock, regardless of which side you chose beforehand.

Factual error: In spite of its description calling it "one of a kind," there are two Elegant Headdresses in the game.

Other mistake: Whenever Leon reloads his Shotgun, Riot Gun or Striker, he always puts in two shells, regardless of how many are actually reloaded.

Continuity mistake: In RE4: Wii Edition, as Leon goes through his mission in the Mafia suit, his and all other characters' alternative costumes (ie, Ashley's suit of armor) change back to their default outfits during every cutscene.

Other mistake: After fighting the lake monster, if Leon is wearing his police uniform (unlocked after beating the game), in the next cutscene he has a nightmare about the Las Plagas in his body. He looks down at his arm (which is now infected with the Las Plagas) and screams, but since the jacket is covering his arm, he would not have been able to see it.

Continuity mistake: During the first knife fight with Krauser shortly before fighting "it" Leon's knife changes hands several times, one particularly notable part is just before he cuts Krauser across the chest, Leon drops his knife with his left hand and grabs it with his right, but in the previous shot, he was holding the knife in his right hand anyway.

Continuity mistake: Shortly after Leon's first encounter with Bittorez Mendez (where Mendez chokes Leon, then walks through a door that Leon just passed through), Leon can trigger a cut scene in which he is attacked a second time by trying to follow Mendez, Ada will shoot Mendez, putting several bullet holes in his coat to get Mendez to leave Leon alone. However, when Leon fights Mendez in the barn, the bullet holes in his coat are visible in the cut scene whether the previous cut scene, forcing Ada to fire at him, was activated or not.

Continuity mistake: When you fight the first El Gigante the gates open so you can head to the church. Before you go through the doors look up at the sky, you notice it's just a plain night sky. When you exit (walkway to the church) it's pouring down rain. Even before the boss fight it's raining, so why is it not raining only in this area?

Suggested correction: I have been out in the rain several times where the rain is highly localized with areas where it is not raining adjacent to areas where it is raining.

Character mistake: How does Luis not know who Ashley is, despite being shown a photo of her by Leon and saying "She's the president's daughter", when the two were captured and tied up in a cabin in the valley?

Audio problem: In the first cut scene where Leon talks to Hunnigan he's saying "I thought you'd be a little longer" instead of "I thought you'd be a little older".

Trivia: The knife Leon throws when he rescues Ada at the end of the game was Krauser's knife; the same knife he picked up after their first encounter.

Question: The scene where Ashley is taking control of the grabber vehicle is a bit off to me. Like, in which part of her life the US president's daughter - a spoiled university student - was instructed about how to handle heavy machinery?
